What should I do if I am discriminated against at work?

If you think if you’ve been discriminated against at work, there’s really three main things that you should do.

First, you want to check your company policies, maybe your employee handbook and there may be a policy that applies that tells you how to report a problem, how to file a complaint with the company. Second thing you want to do is make sure that you research what deadlines might apply, whether that’s through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the EEOC, or a state-level agency. Third, it’s advisable to talk with an experienced attorney about this.

There are many different laws that apply, different deadlines that may apply. You want to make sure that you’ve chosen the best avenue to take your case to court.
